Specialties

Dr. Peter A Kechejian has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

What a great doctor

Dr, K has made me feel like I have never felt any drs office for my chronic pain. He made me comfortable;e in my surroundings, comfortable to talk about my issues and has done nothing but help my pain ease away. Hes a little much on the energy level, but i love it. Some may not know this is hes not only a DR but he is chronic pain patient as well. Which is why i think he makes a great dr. because he knows what your going through. Love him.

Never felt so uncomfortable in my life

I have never felt so uncomfortable and disrespected in my life. I did NOT feel as if I was dealing with someone in the medical field but rather dealing with some uneducated, overly confident individual. I have never been spoken to with such profanity as to having to question myself as to where I was. Without checking the controlled substance logs to see a patients history of meds, he prescribed and sent a script for narcotics without even discussing with me what he had sent in. Its extremely difficult to carry out a conversation with Dr. Peter Kechejian due to his abnormally fast talking and if you happen to have any questions for him, he wont entertain your concerns and reminds you who is in charge. If you are looking for a dr who is thorough, respectful of your concerns, and looking for a professional environment this is not the place to go. I am not accustomed to this use of profanity at home, or even in my daily life let alone in a medical atmosphere. He refers to his patients as "nothing more and nothing less than just a number." For some people that may not be an issue for them, but when my health is a primary concern of mine due to my injuries directly affecting my daily life, that's not acceptable. Moreover, for Dr Kechejian to claim he is a chronic pain sufferer himself, Im appauled he can conduct himself in this matter. His PITS program and pbs special seem to serve more importance in his life opposed to the practice he belongs to. I would never reccommend this doctor to anyone. No one deserves to be told that they are nothing but just a number to any physician. Needless to say I will not be returning to that practice.

Was seeing him for 6 years, and wrote out my scripts, which he told me id need for the rest of my life, gave me my epidurals which worked great, then BAM!, Last three months told me I amnot getting anymore epidurals, and he is weaning me off the meds, which he told me Id need for the rest of my life, I have degenerative spine disease which only gets worse and worse and hes now taking me off of everything? Ive been miserable this whole summer, until my other dr referred me to a new compassionate caring dr who isn't all about himself and really cares for his patients. When I tild the new dr about dr K, he shook his head and said he has heard this more times than he cares to admit. Dr. K. was good for 6 years, then decided I wasn't a good enough patient for him anymore....
